105.7 The Point stopped by Lewis and Clark Community College to host a Back to School Big Summer Show Ticket Blast on Aug. 28.
Students were able to win tickets to go see alt-J, Walk the Moon, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Matt and Kim and San Fermin at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Maryland Heights, MO.
To win, students could either enter their name into a ballot, or by winning an athletic contest, one of which was a frisbee accuracy contest and another being a hula hoop contest.
Along with the ballot and athletic challenges, students were treated to walking tacos, drinks, and volleyball games.
The event was hosted by 105.7 The Point’s Tony Patrico from the Rizzuto Morning Show, who was excited to come out to the campus.
“It’s nice to come back to a college and kind of hang out with all the students,” Patrico said. “Events like this are fun because they’re not really work for me, as I’m hanging out with a bunch of people that we’re in my exact shoes ten years ago, so it’s really nice to hang out and give back to the community a little.”
Dom Marotta, a student at L&C, won the tickets and a copy of Highly Suspect’s album Mister Asylum on CD.
“I am really excited to attend the concert, some of the bands that are playing I’ve been listening to for years, and I’m really looking forward to seeing them,” she said. “My 21st birthday is just a few days before the show, so I’m considering this an early birthday gift from 105.7.”
For those who didn’t get a chance to win, tickets for alt-J, Walk the Moon, Matt and Kim and San Fermin can be purchased via Livenation or Ticketmaster and 105.7 The Point can be listened to at www.1057thepoint.com/.
